Have Your Say in Disability Research

Disabled researchers wanted – join today!           

The Research Institute for Disabled Consumers (RiDC) – www.ridc.org.uk – is a leading UK expert in user-centred research involving disabled and older consumers. 

An independent charity with over 50 years’ experience of specialist research, it has an active consumer research panel of nearly 1,000 people.

RiDC’s board of twelve trustees all have personal experience of disability.

For far too long there’s been disjointed planning in the design of products and services in the UK.

There’s also been an ongoing failure to appreciate people’s real life needs for products and services to be fully accessible and inclusive.

RiDC is determined to improve things with the help of members of its consumer research panel. The RiDC panel consists of people of all ages throughout the UK who’ve a wide range of disabilities and impairments with real-life experience, knowledge and insight.

Disabled people are absolutely vital to RiDC’s research. And now RiDC needs even more people to join its panel.

So if you are a disabled or older person living in the UK, then why not use your knowledge and experience to help RiDC with this important research?

As a valued panel member, you may be asked to take part in mystery shopping, usability testing of products, surveys and questionnaires and focus groups.

RiDC will offer you research to do only when it becomes available in your area and if it is appropriate to you and your interests.

Generally, RIDC covers your time and expenses. Plus, because each research project is based on you and your experience, it’s usually pretty interesting.
